Keith Ellison: Let's Grow Our Democracy

Dear Friend,

The strength and verve of our democracy is literally at stake in next week’s election. You have the power to make this the most inclusive and embracing election we’ve seen in our lifetime. I am asking you to dig deep and please give once more to our campaign - $35, $50, whatever you can. Please give by clicking here:

A $35 gift today will fuel a day of voter rides to the polls for those in need. A donation of $50 today mails 150 households a piece of positive, issue-based literature. If you act today, your $250 (or more) will go toward a media campaign that calls to our best hopes over our darkest fears. With resources from committed folks like you, we’ll use every tool we have to build the broad majority we’ll need to continue our proud tradition - that of Humphrey, Mondale, Sabo, and Wellstone.

As more and more voters join the process, we all reap the rewards. From here on out we’ll be spending every penny, putting every ounce of energy and dedicating every waking moment to contacting the voters of the Fifth District. We’ll be reaching disaffected voters face to face. We’ll be reaching disadvantaged voters at their doors. We’ll be reaching disheartened voters in personal ways with our positive message: in our America everybody counts and everybody matters. Be sure we reach them all.

President Bill Clinton reminded Democrats in a recent appeal what is really at stake on Tuesday. He wrote, “The extreme ideological approach of the Republican leadership in Washington is spectacularly ill-suited to face the challenges of today and tomorrow. We need a Democratic majority to take us in a new direction.” I want to be your Democrat, working hard on the issues that matter most to you. But we won’t be able to weave together the many threads of our community without a strong loom. Our strong GOTV plan will engage voters of all walks all over the district – with your help.

Please contribute today. President Clinton finished his message with these words: “This is a serious election. We, as citizens, have some fundamental decisions to make about what kind of people we are, what kind of country we are going to leave our children and our grandchildren, and how we are going to relate to the rest of the world.” Next week we start in a New Direction. Start us on the right foot. Your help is needed now.

My sincere thanks,

Representative Keith Ellison
Minnesota House District 58B
DFL Candidate for Congress, District 5

Yes, let's grow our democracy with an anti-Semite and a friend of terror supporters in Congress!

Vote Keith Ellison, and give radical Muslims with ties to terrorism a voice in Congress!
